Avoid shopping or important decisions from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Double-check information about debt, taxes, shared property, inheritances and banking details because something unexpected might throw you for a loop. Don’t be caught napping. Be proactive in case you can save yourself from a bad situation.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Be diplomatic and charming with close friends and partners. Use your warm, Taurus diplomacy to head off something unexpected that you might not like. At the least, be prepared for a few surprises from someone. “It was a dark and stormy night, and somewhere in the distance, a dog barked.”
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your work routine might be interrupted by something unexpected — staff shortages, power outages, fire drills, computer crashes or equipment breakdowns. Knowing this ahead of time, give yourself some wiggle room to deal with surprises.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Parents should be aware that this is an accident-prone time for their kids, which means you have to be more vigilant than usual. Know where they are at all times. Make sure you remove them from hazardous situations. Meanwhile, social occasions might be canceled or changed. (Sigh.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur, or perhaps a family argument might break out because something will change your home routine, that’s for sure. Slow down and take it easy to avoid accidents. Stay calm and don’t overreact, especially with family members.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is an accident-prone time for your sign. Think before you speak. Think before you act. This way, if you are mindful, you will reduce being caught off guard or dealing with something for which you are not prepared. Aagghh!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Something unexpected will affect your assets. It could be anything but it will likely affect your cash flow, the money that you own or your possessions. For example, you might find money or you might lose money. Likewise, something you own might be lost, stolen or damaged. Keep your eyes open!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Mercury is in your sign opposing Uranus, which speeds up your mental process and makes you think and talk fast. However, you might be too impulsive or slapdash for tasks that require discipline and attention to detail. Caution against being too blunt or offhand. “You talkin’ to me?” Yes, you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Something going on behind the scenes will probably catch you off guard or tomorrow. There’s not much you can do to prepare for this except to be mindful and alert. Keep your day orderly so that you have room to deal with the unexpected. Be cool.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A friend, especially someone younger, might do or say something that shocks you. Alternatively, you might meet someone who is a real character. This person might challenge your way of thinking or they might reveal some side of themselves that you never saw before.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Get ready for a few surprises today (or tomorrow) because your dealings with bosses, parents, VIPs and the police will involve something unexpected that you didn’t see coming. Obviously, monitor your actions and be aware that you could be scrutinized.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Travel plans will be changed, canceled or modified somehow. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to do so. Likewise, school schedules might suddenly change because today is full of unpredictable happenings.
